policy debate. this morning, the campaign handed out a 20-page booklet to reporters outlining an obama second term agenda and here's the ad they made to go with it. >> we're not there yet but we've made real progress and the last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years. making education and training a national priority. building on our manufacturing goal. boosting american made energy. reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where we can and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. >> last night, the president was certainly aggressive. romney may have played it safe but made no major mistakes and his supporters also declared victory. analysts point out there's agreement on many key issues. on style, the president with zingers an pulled out the most quoted one when romney mentioned the navy. >> our navy is smaller now than any time since 1917. >> i think governor romney maybe hasn't spent time looking at how the military works. you mentioned navy, for example. fewer ships than in 1916. governor, we fewer horses than bayonets because the nature of
. >>> thanks very much. an interview with president obama that none of us were meant to see. it goes public. it includes some revealing remarks about his opponents and his plans for a second term. also, mitt romney's sidetracked by some controversial remarks about rape and abortion by a senate candidate he endorsed. and newly revealed e-mail, they're raising new questions right now in the hours following the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> just 13 days until the presidential election and the obama and romney campaigns, they are kicking into overdrive as the candidates make their final push to win the white house. cnn correspondents are following their every move. they're reporting from coast to coast and from all the most crucial states, any one of which has the potential to decide who the next president of the united states will be. let's begin this hour's coverage in iowa where president obama kicked off a two-day coast-to-coast swing through eight states. he's calling it a campaign marathon extravaganza. likeni
received nearly $2 million from obama's stimulus programs. so let's go straight to gloria borgeer who i know is watching the speech. my question number one for you is this. i didn't hear a lot new in the speech. i'm guessing you didn't hear much new in the speech either. so given that fact, isn't it a bit risky, though, to introduce new policy here with 10, 11 days to go? isn't this really about getting voters excited getting out to vote? >> it's about getting independent voters to really take a look at you as somebody who is reasonable. as you said, this is really not about new ideas. this is about a different tone, a different kind of appeal. talking about change. i mean, four years ago. remember, barack obama was the candidate of change. you can't do that when you're the incumbent but it's easy to do when you're the challenger. so you make the case for change. you admit, as mitt romney did, that barack obama was kind of dealt a bad hand, but then you say, you know what? he didn't do enough to get us out of this. he didn't do what he needed to do. and i'm optimistic, show some optimis

particularly in the last few days that president obama will end up with a double digit lead among women -- >> if these views are so extreme though -- congresswoman if these views are so extreme, why is there a tightening? why wouldn't the president just be storming away? >> well, we've known that this was going to be a tight election all the way through and we've been in the process of standing up most significant, largest grassroots presidential campaign in history, the contrast between president obama and mitt romney on women's issues in particular, on women's health is very stark, mitt romney has the most extreme views really of any modern times presidential nominee when it comes to women's reproductive health, when it comes to making sure that women have economic equity. he still won't say whether he would sign the lilly ledbetter fair pay act into law. women lose $431,000 over their professional life by not getting equal pay for equal work. it's real money and at the end of the day when women go cast their ballot in the ballot box, president obama will have a double-digit lead with
a key battleground state and the tampa bay times endorses president barack obama. next is a caller from oregon. good morning. caller: thank you for taking my call. i personally think you have to keep your eye out on them. are you there? host: yes. caller: you have to keep your eye on the media. the fourth estate. i really pay attention locally. i think that is really important. i think people need to really start at home. i tried to listen to everybody. i called on the republican line. i definitely listen to other people. i watch a lot of c-span, which educates me a lot. people need to not be so easily set -- easily lead it. host: thank you. on our twitter page -- another key florida newspaper endorses mitt romney. to reset is on the phone from jersey city, new jersey. -- theresa is o nthe phone. caller: i do not think it matters to they endorse. they are just like people. they slant one way or the other. they are either liberal newspapers or conservative newspapers. i really feel that people -- especially republicans -- they are easily influenced by whatever they said. when the mitt ro
for a couple weeks, probably obama by a few points now. i have absolutely no idea. and a strange thing has happened, mika. you actually have, instead of the romney people acting a little nervous and crazy, which they have, we have for a year, you now have democrats that are starting to move into this panic phase. you know, we could lose this thing. i think for the first time, they're getting really nervous. >> i have a lot of people -- we've seen it together -- coming up to us going, what's going to happen? what's going to happen? it is a real nail-biter at this point. >> it is a toss-up. >> i think that's fair to say. i'm not sure where these polls will end up in the long run in terms of being correct, but you know what? they are at least a touchstone for the conversation. >> this race right now could not be closer, john. >> you think about the trend line just in this poll, just to stick with the consistency, the nbc/"wall street journal" poll, people say it's the gold standard for polling. i don't disagree. in early september, obama coming out of the convention, a five-point lead with li
. meanwhile the obama camp has released a new ad taking aim at mr. romney's economic plan. >> in here it's just you. no ads, no debates, just you. so think about this. mitt romney's plan rolls back regulations on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare voucherized. >> president obama also talking about avoiding the fiscal cliff which would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts two short months from now. he says he wants to work with congressional republicans on it. >> i've said to folks, i'll go to capitol hill. i'll wash john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. i'll do whatever is required to get this done. >> president obama heads to new hampshire a bit later today for a stop in nashua. vice president biden is scheduled to hold an event in lynch burg, virginia. >>> now we go to ohio where nbc's ron mott is on that bus tour with paul ryan. hello to you ron again. where are you in the many stops on that bus tour today? >> reporter: hey there, alex. i've got to get my back stretched out. we've got five stops as you mentioned here today. three more tomorrow. eight in total.
's the ugliness of this campaign. heading into the last week the romney campaign against president obama carries the scent of hell. john sununu, the top romney surrogate, barks at that lazy one in the white house who doesn't know how to be an american, who sarah palin mocks for shucking and jiving, and donald trump accuses again and again and again of being from kenya and playing monkey business with the country's economic numbers. you know, the same fellow romney says cheats on the welfare checks to feed his political base. the guy again rich calls the food stamp president. listen to sununu last night yelling at former governor bill richardson to shut up saying, general colin powell's political judgment is based on racial bias. trump offering a big bet the president won't show his student transcripts all to diminish the president's academic rise to editor of the harvard law review. yes, it's all directed at drumming up the blue collar white vote for the republican ticket and, yes, it smells. david corn is author of "the 47 percent" and roy reid is managing editor of the grio. both are msnbc pol
about how the obama team views the final stretch. and i think again their internal polling and what you just said, you know the turn out, a lot of the groupings are feeling under polled, they are feeling emboldened enough to compete in all 90 battle grounds, they are feeling good enough about things in all nine of them, roo it's? >> yeah, we are feeling very good in all of the battle ground states. i think the polls will continue to fluctuate, somebody will be three or four points up and down. and we are not really focusing on that. we are focusing on actually getting folks, you know, knowing what their rights are to vote. knowing where their polling location is. frankly the get out the vote effort the number one thing that drives people to vote and changes the minds of voters is face-to-face voter contact and phone banking. it's not these ads that you see on tv. it's not the talking heads, you know, that come on cable news, it literally is community members talking to other community members and that's why
test he could. but he didn't come across as strong and assertive in my view. >> how did, obama do? >> i thought he was an a minus. >> a. >> a, you get -- you are a tough a? >> i have not given an a in this entire series of debates to anyone. i thought this was actually barack obama's best moment. and to me the commander-in-chief test and strong and decisive was actually the most important thing in the campaign. it's why mitt romney rose in the aftermath of the first debate. i thought the president came across that way. tll was a few instances i thought he came across a little aggressive. as you watch the debate. you can see he is clear, decisive, and make the decisions you need to make. on that regard i give him an a. >> he seems more confident in this area? >> he is the commander-in-chief right now. let's just leave it at that. it wasn't quite as hard for him to reach that level of an a or a minus. than it was for mitt romney. >> let's give them the bottom line here. who's the winner in your judgment? >> i'm not going to say there is a clear winner. overall obama scored more points. mi
. president obama took them in 2008. our brand new cnn/orc poll is just coming in and it shows president obama leading in ohio right now 50% to mitt romney's 46%. but that's within the sampling error. it's a statistical tie in other words. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us. john, break down the numbers for us. no state right now is more important than ohio. >> you can make that case. no state is more important than ohio. you mention it's within the margin of error but yet another poll showing the president with a small lead in ohio. he's had that pretty much across the general election season. what's driving it right now? in a battleground state like ohio, the president is getting democrats, romney is getting the republicans. the candidate to win election day is likely to win the state and at the moment the president has a five-point edge among independents likely voters. president at 49% governor romney at 44%. that's one of the key reasons the president has the small but still a stubborn lead in the state of ohio. now let's look at this age d
bring that kind of change, real change to our country. >> speak being of change, president obama is taking a breather after clocking more than 6,000 miles in 37 hours. that's a road trip four. with 11 days to go the president continues to campaign with a round of radio interviews. >> after the election and i believe i'll win to bring the republicans together with my administration and democrats and say to them the election is over, we still have some big problems to solve, and the goal of making me a one term president is behind us. >> let's bring in "times" deputy washington bureau chief michael crowley. how are you? we just saw the president talking to michael smirkonish, he was on "rock center," the "tonight show" and "morning joe." he's doing a lot of interviews. meanwhile romney said no more interviews for the ref of the election, what do you make of these two different strategies? >> well i'm a little surprised because i think that all though it seems like the popular vote right now in the polling is at least tied and romney may even have a little bit of an edge, i think ob
. >>> to presidential politics and the battle for the battlegrounds. president obama waking up in the white house this morning, following two days of virtual barack around the clock campaigning in eight states. mitt romney swarming the swing states as well, ohio yesterday and again today. he will also be in iowa for what his campaign calls a significant economic speech today. the latest cnn poll of polls has mitt romney 48%, president obama at 47%. that's pretty much a dead heat 11 days out. also three new swing state polls shows how tight this race is. in nevada, president obama up 50-47, according to a new nbc news/wall street journal poll. same poll has the race tied in colorado. all of these virtual ties with just 11 days to go. cnn political director mark preston live. what do these campaigns have going on today? >> it doesn't mean he stopped campaigning. in fact, today he will do 10 interviews, seven of them with local affiliates in the battleground states. we'll get the names of those affiliates later on today. mtv, doing about a 20, 25-minute interview with mtv later this afternoon which
conversation with the obama folks yesterday, i don't think the president's going to be doing very many interviews like the kind he's going to do with brian over the next couple days. and that "des moines register" thing, i don't think we've seen that play out completely. the paper says it's not going to impact their endorsement, but i think there will be a lot of talk in iowa to do it the way he did. >> we'll talk about it this morning. i can't wait to get mike's input. i wonder how "the globe" editors would handle that. let's go to the top of the news, mika. >> we're in the final sprint before election day, and the canned da candidates' travel plans tell you everything. the nbc political team puts the remaining of toss-up states at seven with a total of 89 electoral votes up for grabs. today alone, the white house contenders and their running mates will hit at least four of those states from reno, nevada, to davenport, iowa. just a single point separates the two candidates among likely voters. that's according to the latest abc news/"washington post" tracking poll. speaking alongside
. virginia, despite some of the polls, looking better for obama, the obama campaign sort of had officials telling the national journal that is look like a romney state. where does it get fought out? in ohio. in new hampshire. in iowa. in wisconsin. if romney can hold on to the other states and get ohio, he wins. if he cannot get ohio he could still win by getting wisconsin and either of the other two, new hampshire or iowa. but that is less likely path. nevada, which was on the map, seems to is gone for obama, the romney campaign is pessimistic about it according to the latest reports. right now the president leads and it is tight, in all four of these states, then what? >> well, if president obama wins all four state obviously he is re-elected. >>neil: there is no factoring out surprising wins for romney elsewhere? if wisconsin and ohio that speaks of the midwest, the rust belt, sticking with the president not going to romney making his climb with virginia and north carolina and winning indiana back, not enough? >>guest: he could make up for it by winning pennsylvania, for example, but t
